Tally Lake

This beautiful custom energy efficient home is located in Whitefish Montana, just minutes from Tally Lake. The modern architecture and selective use of exterior materials gives this new home a unique feel. The home includes a variety of exposed steel and concrete throughout. The panels at the entry way, Corten metal roof and stucco work together to generate a 21st century appeal.


In addition to achieving a very low infiltration rate (< 1 ACH 50), a robustly insulated thermal envelope and a high-efficient heat pump, this home has a 10KW ground mount solar array to offset its annual energy usage. On any particular day, the unused energy produced is banked in the electrical grid to be used for a rainy day when the sun is not shining. A heat pump hot water heater and an energy recovery ventilator help to keep energy demands low.
